A Speyside heavy weight, Craigellachie brings us a meaty character with plenty of grunt. Distilled in 1995, this Craigellachie from Douglas Laing was matured in a refill sherry butt for 25 years and bottled at a natural cask strength of 53.7%. Freshly warmed pecans covered in golden syrup open on the nose, followed by waxy lemons, green olives and home baking. The palate is heavy, a harmony of sweet and savoury. New leather with shavings of fresh oak, sticky toffee apples, berries, and engine oil. The finish is long and sweet, reminiscent of circus candyfloss and rich crème brulee. A fantastic addition to the 'Xtra Old Particular' range.
